This version is based on the creator's childhood where the local kids formed their own countries with real working governments and economies. Players need to recruit and manage kids with different social, financial, and athletic skills for their micronations, corporations, or other groups. Fort construction, stock trading, real estate, currency manipulation, diplomacy, and combat are all optional strategic tools for getting ahead. The scoring and game itself is open ended. Neighborhood Conflict is a unique and moderately complex game with versatile gameplay and good game balance.
